Research Areas

Broadly, Logan is interested in using tools from developmental affective neuroscience (e.g., fMRI, computational modeling) to understand the escalation of self-injurious thoughts and behaviors (e.g., suicide, nonsuicidal self-injury) in adolescence. He hopes to identify neurodevelopmental processes (e.g., changes in brain structure and function, reward sensitivity, autonomy, identity development, and socio-affective learning opportunities) that can be leveraged to promote positive growth trajectories for youth at-risk for, or engaging in, self-injury.
